Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Exposure to infection and HIV infection are all major risk factors. Coughing, fever, and weight loss are all possible symptoms.
If pulmonary tuberculosis is suspected, the patient should ideally be isolated, a chest x-ray taken, and three sputum samples collected for acid-fast bacilli smear and culture; a nucleic acid amplification test on at least one respiratory specimen should be conducted.
Directly monitored treatment is strongly recommended, especially in individuals where adherence cannot be assumed.
Our TB Clinic provides Early detection and implementation of appropriate therapy for infectious tuberculosis is critical for controlling TB spread.
Extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) is a bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis that affects organ systems other than the lungs.
Diagnosis may be delayed due to nonspecific clinical signs that proceed slowly, as well as the limited sensitivity of acid-fast bacilli (AFB) smears on extrapulmonary specimens.
Microbiologic evidence is essential for diagnosis and therapy, and tissue biopsies are usually necessary. Pathology results of granulomas and positive AFB stain, as well as chest x-ray findings, are also supportive.
We provide initial treatment at our TB clinic consisting of a 4-drug regimen of isoniazid, rifampin, pyrazinamide, and ethambutol, and it lasts at least 6 months.
MDR TB is caused by an organism that is resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampin, the two most powerful TB medications. These medications are used to treat all people who have tuberculosis. Our best Pulmonologist Dr. Parthiv Shah offers the best TB care and treatment at our TB clinic at Ashokone hospital.
Extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR TB) is a rare form of MDR tuberculosis that is resistant to isoniazid and rifampin, as well as any fluoroquinolone and at least one of three injectable second-line medicines (i.e., amikacin, kanamycin, or capreomycin).
Because XDR TB is resistant to the most strong TB medications, patients are left with far less effective treatment alternatives.
XDR TB is of special concern for persons with HIV infection or other conditions that can weaken the immune system. These persons are more likely to develop TB disease once they are infected, and also have a higher risk of death once they develop TB.
